OPSEC - Navy Operations Security

Always keep Navy Operations Security in mind.  In the Navy, it's essential to remember that "loose lips sink ships."  OPSEC is everyone's responsibility. 

DON'T post critical information including future destinations or ports of call; future operations, exercises or missions; deployment or homecoming dates.  

DO be smart, use your head, always think OPSEC when using texts, email, phone, and social media, and watch this video: "Importance of Navy OPSEC."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:



**UPDATE 4/26/2022** Effective with the May 6, 2022 PIR 4 guests will be allowed.  Still must be fully vaccinated to attend.

**UPDATE 7/29/2021** You now must be fully vaccinated in order to attend PIR:

In light of observed changes and impact of the Coronavirus Delta Variant and out of an abundance of caution for our recruits, Sailors, staff, and guests, Recruit Training Command is restricting Pass-in-Review (recruit graduation) to ONLY fully immunized guests (14-days post final COVID vaccination dose).  

Specific information on this policy change will be provided in the coming days and weeks.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your support.


RTC Graduation

**UPDATE 6/23/2022 - MASK MANDATE IS LIFTED -  Vaccinations still required


Please note! Changes to this guide happened in October 2017. Tickets are now issued for all guests, and all guests must have a ticket to enter base. A separate parking pass is no longer needed to drive on to base for parking.

Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.

Stephanie's Graduation

Posted on November 7, 2012 at 12:35pm 2 Comments

I can not believe how fast the time has gone since my daughter left for boot camp, I thought I would be crying and sad all the time but the truth is it went by so fast and now she graduates next Friday, I am so proud of her and am so looking forward in spending what time we have after graduation with her.

My Daughter leaves for boot camp the middle of September, anyone know of a place where I can get party supplies for her going away party? I need invitations to.

My Sister was also crying when I answered the phone. I think it was cause she tried to call my mom 1st but she was baby sitting and didnt have her phone next to her. She said she was just really happy to talk to someone from home. Not tears of sadness but of joy =)

I got my first call from my Sister (thank God) She is just now sending her 1st letter out to our Mom tonight. My Mom was kinda bummed that she missed her call today.

Hello! Have you herd anything from your SR? I know they say no news is good news but others in the DIV are getting letters and calls just would be nice to know she is ok....well hope to hear from you soon.

We will be going those exact same dates. My Brother just started a new job so not sure if he will be able to get time off just yet. So we are just waiting to see who can go and who cant. My Mother and myself are going for sure. I hope we get to meet at PRI!

Hi Stephsmom!  You might like to join the inland empire of socal mom's group.  We are trying to get together for lunch on 7/14 in Rialto.  The info is posted on the group page.  Hopefully you can join us - my son leaves on 10/23/12.  We can all share info and help each other through the process :)
